First cast details revealed for The Last of Us: Part II

Naughty Dog unveils the names of three characters from the new trailer as well as the actors playing them.

Naughty Dog have revealed the first names casted in the forthcoming The Last of Us: Part II, along with the characters they’re set to portray.

In a series of posts on their social media, the acclaimed studio one-by-one unveiled the names of three of the characters featured in the brand new trailer released yesterday during Paris Games Week.

Ian Alexander, a teenager actor known for starring in The OA TV series, will portray Lev, Victoria Grace, who starred in the 2013 film 47 Ronin, is Yara, and Emily Swallow, a TV actress known for The Mentalist and The Good Wife, will be Emily.

Laura Bailey, who has also starred in Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4, will also portray a character not revealed by the studio.

Writer-director Neil Druckmann revealed shortly after the release of the new trailer, that the sequel to the 2013 critically acclaimed The Last of Us is now in “full production”.

The Last of Us: Part II was officially announced last year during PlayStation Experience with a teaser trailer.

It was later confirmed the sequel is set five years after the events of The Last of Us, with Ellie now 19 years old.

Whilst players took control of Joel for The Last of Us, players will assume the role of Ellie for the sequel.

The previous director, Bruce Straleyleft Naughty Dog back in September with Druckmann taking over directing duties.

  • Hey Sam! I can't attach a feature picture to this post, is it something to do with my permission access on the new system? Best, Tom
  • Hey Sam, it's the new system, I'm just trying it out for my latest podcast episode with Greg Lucey and I'm trying to attach a picture - it uploads the picture and then says I don't have permission to attach it :(
  • Hi Tom, I'll look into this today. I think I already know what the issue is. It's because the media being uploaded is not associating itself to a post ID. Thank you for being my test dummy. At least this creation dialogue is working!!!
  • Hey Sam, I've tried again just now still the same issues I'm afraid :( I'd also look at the text editor I'm not sure if the texted/front is properly formatting at the moment (there's big gapes in the spacing, front size). If you want to jump around inside my draft and see what's what please do! I think I am going to use the legacy editor to upload today, but we can work  on testing and refining the new editor together :) Best, Tom

Everything is ready for a screengrab
